At GDS we’re doing the hard work to make service design simple for all of government. Here are 6 of the things we’ll be working on this year that will help us design better services across government.

We spoke recently at a roundtable in Parliament, organised by the All Parliamentary Group for Design and Innovation (APDIG). At the session, ‘Designing the next generation of government services’, we talked about why GDS is making service design a priority.
Our aim over this parliament is to transform the relationship between the citizen and state: to transform government, together. Service design is a big part of how we plan to do that
We’ve talked elsewhere about how to make and share service patterns, but now seems a good time to explain in more detail what they do and how important they are.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post on the design blog about what public services might look like in a world of government as a platform.
Licence, permit, registration, certification, accreditation - government has lots of different ways for people to get permission to do something.
